Can you check if you have security permissions to the temporary directory?

The problem is caused by the security permissions on your profile temp folder. Go to computer folder,  C:\Users\[Username]\AppData\Local and right click on the Temp folder and choose properties, then click the security tab and click advanced.

On the permissions tab you should see the permissions that are there. There should 3 which are:
'SYSTEM' with Full control which applies to 'This folder, subfolders and files'
'Administrators' with Full control which applies to 'This folder, subfolders and files'
'Your Username' with Full control which applies to 'This folder, subfolders and files'
and all 3 should be inherited from the C:\Users\[Username]\ folder.

If you don't have the 'Include inheritable permissions from this object's parent' option ticked, then tick it and click continue if there are any problems, then remove the permissions that aren't inherited.

Once you click 'Apply' and click 'OK' you should have the permissions to write to the directory and  the error message will be no more.

Hope understand your question completely, if not , please pt it out

HI,

see the temp directory location and provide EVERYONE modify rights to that directory.

by default you can check the rights on C:\windows\temp folder.
